Grounds For Peace Coffeehouse


WEBSITE


GROUNDS FOR PEACE COFFEEHOUSE OFFERS LOCAL, UNIQUE, AND CULTURALLY DIVERSE ENTERTAINMENT IN THE DETROIT METROPOLITAN AREA -- AS WELL AS PREMIUM COFFEE, DRINKS, AND DELICIOUS FOOD.

Grounds for Peace Coffeehouse has been hosting monthly event since January, 2010. The intent of the coffeehouse is to connect with the larger community, share a message of peace and justice amongst all people while supporting music, spoken word and visual artists; build community out of our diversity; raise money to maintain the Peace Lutheran Church’s Time Bank and other community-based programs, and of course, have fun and enjoy one another.

Our Unique & Defining
Faux Stain Glass Windows


The windows in the front of Peace Lutheran may look like stained glass from a distance -- but they are actually made of cardboard and painted plastic.   The windows are titled: "May the Peace of the Lord be with you always!"  and were designed by Cessily Thalacker and created by dedicated church members and community volunteers.  The project took 2 1/2 years from start to finish with many, many hours of detailed work.  Look closely and you will see these themes:



 PLC Congregation & The
People of God -- Gathered in service & fellowship beach walking at camp, in singing, quilting and  picnicking.  We are gardening, mending, planning and sharing God's community with all.


Friends & Families -- Wrapped in the Spirit of God's Infinite Love.


Jesus Christ -- "Thou are my beloved Son!" has two faces: one of outer strength, and the other of inner compassion (light changes which face is seen!)


Songs of Psalms -- The still waters flow below the 23rd Psalm as Christ calms the flow of our lives.


Mountain Rivers  -- God's Life force pours out into the Natural World and turbulent rivers cascade down the mountainsides and crash through broken boulders reminding us of our dynamic baptisms.


The Lion & Lamb -- The Lion (Christ) serenely places his paw into the rough currents, as (we) the trusting Lamb fords the now flowing stream.




Infinity -- The mathematical sign of infinity runs through almost all of the panels signifying eteral life and has shaking hands built in to illustrate our participation in the everlasting through the passing of peace.
